Paul Thornton

Principal of Thornton Investigative Services (TIS)

Paul Thornton, Principal of Thornton Investigative Services (TIS), is a licensed Private Investigator with over 30 years of experience. Throughout his tenure, Mr.Thornton has trained well over 200 "new hires" to become investigators specializing in the areas of surveillance, recorded statements, report writing, and courtroom testimony. Thornton's vast knowledge of surveillance and witness statements utilizing state-of-theart technologies and legal compliance have resulted in many "take nothing" verdicts or applicants dropping their claims. At trial, two-thirds of the jury will be more receptive to evidence presented in a visual format rather than evidence presented verbally. When preparing any case for trial, using demonstrative evidence to tell a story often makes the difference between success and failure.

Some of Mr. Thornton's successful investigations have ranged from child abduction cases, stalking cases, undercover drug cases, the arrests of cappers, medical fraud cases, and child custody cases. He also proved the innocence of a mentally challenged Pasadena man who was charged with murder in Texas.

Mr. Thornton obtained his IEA (Insurance Education Association) Certificate in the early 1990's. He has provided Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) for attorneys and has spoken numerous times on insurance fraud, specifically on "red-flag indicators."
